Saints-Seahawks Player And Coach Quotes
 
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS COACH SEAN PAYTON

“Obviously I’m excited to get the win. Anytime you can do that against a team that we felt was pretty good coming in just looking at them in a lot of different areas. It wasn’t always pretty or clean but I thought we play good with a lot of energy and effort. We had some guys fill in; obviously a new long snapper and some other guys filled in and played a significant amount of time when they haven’t been playing as much. I was pleased. We will be on a short week now so we are really going to have get past this game and on to the next one.”

(On holding Reggie Bush out) “His pregame workout was good and yet I just felt like what I didn’t want to do was err on the side of bringing him because you want to bring him up and then get only seven plays. A perfect example is this; Ladell Betts and one point is down and Chris Ivory is down and we were down to Julius Jones there in the last few minutes. What can’t happen is a player comes back, and I’m optimistic this week I think there is a great chance, he was close in the workout, but if a player comes up and then can’t finish you end up with one less player. It’s not like college so those are tough calls. Both he (Reggie Bush) and Patrick (Robinson) worked out and did well.”

(On if the short week with Thursday’s game played into decision to hold Reggie Bush out) “That really wasn’t part of the consideration. I think it was strictly ‘are they ready to play today?’ And that’s the decision with nothing to do with us having another game right behind it.”

(On three-game win streak) “It’s good to be playing with some momentum. We felt like this is a good team we were playing. They came off an impressive win last week against Arizona. We have a lot of game we have to work our way through. This short week will be Dallas. I don’t think me we have to call it anything other than we’ve won our third game in a row and now we get on to out next challenge, which is a short week with a game on Thursday.”

(On if this is the best the offense has looked) “We’ll look at the tape. The second half we got sloppy, had a couple penalties and just weren’t able to close as we would like. I was pleased with our balance, the ability to run the football. I thought we blocked very well for Drew (Brees) in regards to our protection. Our third down numbers were very strong and I knew that was going to be important. But we had some opportunities with a couple turnovers where we just felt like we could have put that game away a little earlier and yet it’s a game with mistakes and we’ll make those corrections. Overall, there are a lot of positives.”

(On Jason Kyle) “Obviously when we are working out long snappers on Saturday we are caught off guard. He had an MRI done in the middle of the week and there was enough of an injury where the experts had recommended he not play anymore this season. That decision was made on Friday. He had practiced and we had gone through the bye week. I’m still going through myself the time frame of how we arrive on a Saturday workout with three guys in the building that I’ve never met or seen before and one is going to long snap in this game. It’s not a situation you want to be in. We put him on IR on Saturday and signed the new long snapper that afternoon.”
